Leaders differentiate themselves with executive presence, something many talented professionals haven't mastered yet. The Speaker's Choice trains them to develop that presence. It is definitely a learned skill.
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) September 01, 2011
The Speaker's Choice, Inc., a professional coaching and communication training company based in the Chicago area, has opened registration to the public for their upcoming one-day workshop, "Communicating Credibility." The workshop will be held on September 29th at 222 South Riverside Plaza, 29th Floor, Chicago. This all-day seminar commences at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 4:30 p.m.
It is common in professional circles to encounter a subject-matter expert -- an accountant or engineer, for example -- who struggles to speak with power, credibility, and influence. Most professionals have had absolutely no training or coaching to help them give presentations, discuss vital information at meetings, and speak compellingly to colleagues, clients, and vendors.
"The biggest challenge we see in Corporate America is people not getting to the point fast enough. The result is a distracted and disinterested audience,” said Jeff Hornstein, founder of The Speaker's Choice. "We can help people overcome the challenge, though, by working on their mindset, behaviors, and their content. Anyone can learn to be more concise. It is amazing to experience the power of hearing a client go from rambling into the depths of nowhere and boring everyone in sight, to hearing laser-focused, compelling statements."
Hornstein also commented on the importance of face-to-face communications in a business world that is dominated by virtual communication. "Leaders differentiate themselves with executive presence, something many talented professionals haven't mastered yet. The Speaker's Choice trains them to develop that presence. It is definitely a learned skill."
The Communicating Credibility Workshop uses a variety of techniques to teach spoken communication skills, including video, real-time feedback, and incremental skills practice. Small groups ensure that each participant gets substantial practice in a safe, non-threatening setting.
